How to make it

  • Stir together crabmeat, mayonnaise, scallions, egg, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, cayenne, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 3/4 cup bread crumbs in a bowl until just combined. Form into 4 (1-inch-thick) patties (3½ inches in diameter; patties will be soft but will firm up when
  • fried). Spread remaining cup bread crumbs on a plate, then dredge patties in crumbs, knocking off excess, and transfer to a platter. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, then fry patties, turning over once, until golden, 5 to 6 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  • Assemble burgers with buns and accompaniments.
  • Note: Patties can be formed, without bread crumb coating, 12 hours ahead, and chilled, covered. Dredge in bread crumbs just before frying.

    YUM!!! my mouth is watering.
    Softgrey - if you like spicy, try mixing mayo with a few squirts of Thai chili sauce and maybe a bit of lime juice instead of tartar sauce.

    The crab cake sandwich idea sounds wonderful! I hate saying this *but* I have made crab cakes many times and I never thought about making them into a sandwich until now. It is those simple things that can be so evasive! Your the best, thank you for a great post and now I have a new quest...yum! :D
